    Favourite and least favourite streamers?

    As far as I know, when Nick gives to charity he applies Gift Aid to the donation, meaning that it is a personal donation. As soon as you apply for Gift Aid, you can then not deduct that donation from your taxable earnings so he does pay income tax over it. Any good accountant, which I am sure that he has, will tell you that.
  2. Big win videos are big win videos, irrespective who produces them and that includes Casinogrounds but also my Youtube channel. But, as I said, the crux of the matter is that problem gamblers should not be watching ANY gambling material on the internet. I have consistently said this throughout a variety of topics here on the forum.
  3. Online gambling business 32Red has been penalised for not protecting a consumer from gambling-related harm and money laundering failures. The Gambling Commission investigation focused on 32Red’s dealings with a customer who, between November 2014 and April 2017, they allowed to deposit £758,000 without carrying out social responsibility or money laundering checks.

  4. I would argue that big win highlights are more dangerous for a gambling addict (who shouldn't be watching any gambling material in the first place) as they don't show the reality of gambling, and that is that you more often than not don't have such wins. At least with live streams you see what playing online is all about - more losing than winning spins and sessions. If anything, I would hazard a guess that a big win video will prompt an addict to put yet another deposit in he can ill afford to lose rather than watching a streamer lose money during a 3 hour stream.

    Wagering

    Playing through your deposit once is pretty standard for most if not all reputable casinos. It is done for anti money laundering purposes mainly.

    Winningroom welcome bonus!

    It sort of says it in the T's and C's: Bonuses and Freespins Gaming Operator will from time to time award bonus money to Players which are accounted for separately. Gaming Operator reserves the right to refuse or rescind bonuses at any time for any reason. Bonus money cannot under any circumstance be withdrawn from the Player’s Account. If a Player withdraws money from its Player’ Account and there still is bonus money on the Player’s Account which has not been wagered in accordance with Section 7.3 such un-wagered bonus money on the Player’s Account will be automatically forfeited and no longer available for the Player. The Gaming Operator applies the principle that cash funds on the Player’s Account are first used for payment of games and bonuses in second hand.

    Bonus for indicating casino bugs, possible?

    Wait, you discovered a bug where you can change your account balance? That is where it is more than you deposited? Is the casino a reputable one? If so name abd shame cause I wouldn't want to play there.

    Electrawork fined £350k by UKGC

    @NudgeShuffle Thank for those. I think it is quite important that all stories are shared and not selective ones. People wouldn't want to think there is a hidden agenda now. So I will continue to post them as they are appearing on the UKGC website - irrespective of which casino is involved. And yes, I am already aware of the Leovegas one as it has already been posted in this forum. I (and you) already contributed to the topic in case you already forgot.
  9. Online gambling business ElectraWorks has been fined £350,000 by the Gambling Commission for repeatedly misleading consumers with adverts relating to free bonuses. In April 2017 the Commission discovered six similar breaches on its casinoking.com, casinolasvegas.com, noblecasino.com, partycasino.com, partypoker.com and scasino.com websites. In June 2017 the same breaches were subsequently found again on these sites. And in August 2017 a similar breach occurred on ElectraWorks’ casinolasvegas.com website.

  10. Examples of WHG’s failures include (all figures are approximate): A customer was allowed to deposit £654,000 over nine months without source of funds checks being carried out. The customer lived in rented accommodation and was employed within the accounts department of a business earning around £30,000 per annum. A customer was allowed to deposit £541,000 over 14 months after the operator made the assumption that the customer’s potential income could be £365,000 per annum based on a verbal conversation and without further probing. The reality was that the customer was earning around £30,000 a year and was funding his gambling habit by stealing from his employer. A customer who was allowed to deposit £653,000 in an 18 month period activated a financial alert at WHG. The alert resulted in a grading of ‘amber risk’ which required, in accordance with the licensee’s anti-money laundering policy, a customer profile to be reviewed. The file was marked as passed to managers for review but this did not occur due to a systems failure. The customer was able to continue gambling for a further six months despite continuing to activate financial alerts. A customer was identified by WHG as having an escalating gambling spend with deposit levels exceeding £100,000. WHG interacted with the customer seeking assurance that the customer was ‘comfortable with their level of spend’. After receiving verbal assurance and without investigating the wider circumstances the operator continued to allow the customer to gamble. In our view that interaction was inadequate and did not review the customer’s behaviour sufficiently to identify if their behaviour was indicative of problem gambling. A customer exceeded deposits of £147,000 in an 18 month period with an escalating spend and losses of £112,000. WHG systems identified the issue but its only response over a 12 month period was to send two automated social responsibility emails. Our view is that this action alone was not sufficient given the customer’s gambling behaviour coupled with the severity of the losses.

  11. Gambling business Skybet is to pay a £1m penalty package for failing to protect vulnerable consumers. The failures relate to Skybet customers who had self-excluded from gambling. Self-exclusion is a tool used by consumers who feel they are having trouble controlling their gambling and request that the operator refuse their service. Weakness in Skybet’s self-exclusion facilities meant that: 736 self-excluded customers were able to open and use duplicate accounts to gamble Around 50,000 self-excluded customers received marketing material by email, mobile text or a push notification within a mobile app 36,748 self-excluded customers did not have their account balance funds returned to them on account closure.

  12. As I said up topic, not very good by Leovegas at all and a well deserved telling off by the UKGC. I noticed from Andreas post that measures have been put in place now to prevent it happening again, which is good news. Regulators (in all industries, such as energy, telecommunications, advertising) slap fines on Companies quite frequently. Over on another casino forum, you hear about UKGC intervention quite often across a plethora of casinos. On this forum, you only hear about it when it is Leovegas. Makes you wonder why
  13. Plenty of other casinos out there. All with their own advantages and disadvantages.
  14. Do they share the same UK License? If not, then it is quite possible. If they do share the same license, then it shouldn't have happened. You are aware of Gamstop? It self excludes from all UK licensed casinos. Self exclusion should only be used if you have gambling problems and want to stop. Use the "take a break" option if you want a short break from gambling but not because of problem gambling. Bad form by Leovegas and a well deserved fine by the UKGC.
  15. But shouldn't gambling be made unlawful then? That would be the end of that then. But that isn't the case in most jurisdictions. Same applies to smoking. It is a legalised product. So is gambling. At the end of the day, people have to make their own choices and if it goes wrong after, then the person in the mirror is to be blamed.
